NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – This Saturday morning at 10:00, St Louis Cathedral will be full of Catholics welcoming four new priests into the archdiocese.

The archdiocese says the four men are part of a slowly growing national trend of more men becoming priests.

We asked the four about the ongoing debate over whether to allow priests to marry.  You might be surprised at their answers.

Also, did you know that the Catholic Church already allows some priests to be married?
